For six years the Wreak Havoc Horror Film Festival has been an event that celebrates and  showcases international, national, and local horror films. The festival offers both feature and short films in many horror subgenres while recognizing and awarding the best of the festival.

This festival was conceived out of love and with the purpose of showing the best of new and aspiring horror filmmakers. WHHFF’s ambition is to present the audience variety and an experience that nurtures and celebrates horror movies and filmmaking both international and local.  These aren’t just a random list of movies. These films represent a highly curated, official selection that were painstakingly deliberated by our team of judges.

This year our team of judges have grown and now include;

Dan Sellers,  Director

Sammie Cassell,  Assistant Director

Annie Titus,  Marketing Director

Chad Hunt,  Judge

Jacob Allen,  Judge

Jeffrey Cochran,  Judge

Joseph Perry, Judge

Stephanie Griffin,  Judge

Jason Revill,  Judge

Horror lovers, filmmakers, and students learning the craft attend the film festival to show their support for horror films and the artists behind them. The film festival is interactive as attending special guests, like directors and producers, spend some post-show time sharing their stories and answering questions from the crowds. Audience members laugh, jump, and celebrate true horror-making at its heart-racing finest.
